Overclocking Intel's Core 2 Quad Q6600
Posted by newsbot on July 25th 2007



One comparison that we’ve made in the office over the last weekor sosince we started really tinkering with our Core 2 Quad Q6600 is to theAthlon XP 2500+ for those of you that remember that CPU. At the time,AMD’s flagship processor was the XP 3200+, which was clocked at11x200MHz. The XP 2500+ shared the same multiplier as the 3200+, butused the slower 166MHz front side bus speed. Getting flagship performance out of the XP 2500+ was as simple asincreasing the front side bus from 166MHz to 200MHz – virtually everyprocessor did that on stock volts. I think we’re going to see somethingsimilar with the Core 2 Quad Q6600 – it shares the same multiplier asthe Core 2 Extreme QX6850, but uses a 1066MHz front side bus instead of1333MHz.
